Changing Our Mind-set towards Fashion
In today’s age, where fashion is wasteful and pollutive to the environment, a shift of consumer’s mentality is crucial. We need to change our mind-set towards something that is good for both the wallet and climate. We are purchasing twice as much clothing and wearing it just half as long.
This is exactly why one of Ngali’s key missions is to contribute to Circular Fashion. We design clothes that last longer and offer an alternative to fast fashion which not only creates vast inequality but is also a huge environmental problem.
To make our clothes last for the longest time, we use only top-quality fabrics to produce silk dresses, scarves, tops and pants. That’s because we are committed to make our pieces last and able to be worn for the longest time.
Our timeless clothing pieces are an amalgam of various trends but not trend related. That’s why they transcend the boundaries fast fashion trends create and are loved by many. The motto of our company is ‘to create clothing that can be recycled or upcycled’. We also practice just-in-time manufacturing to eliminate wastage.
Why Circular fashion in Clothing is Important
A staggering 108 million tonnes of non-renewable resources are used each year in the textile industry, to produce clothing. The textile industry alone will account for 25% of the global carbon footprint by the year 2050.
With this dilemma in mind, Ngali opts for just-in-time manufacturing to eliminate as much wastage as possible.
Its high-time we make fashion circular and increase the average number of times the same clothes are worn. This is exactly where resale enters the game – we need to start purchasing clothing items that are durable and resellable, just like Ngali’s silk and cotton clothing which includes easy care silk dresses, silk scarves, best designer travel clothes, silk going-out dresses, etc.
Ethically Sourced Raw Materials
To deeply engrave the roots of circular fashion in the textile industry, it’s important that we start with raw materials. Clothes should be made from renewable materials and designed in a way that they can either be resold or renewed into new clothes.
